County’s IT group has won 25 awards this year alone!

The Office of Information Technology (OIT) has been recognized for multiple projects by national marketing and communications professionals.

This global competition honors individuals and groups who have made superior contributions to the concept, writing and design of print, visual, audio, and web marketing materials and programs.

The County continues to be recognized in their pursuit of excellence. With this most recent recognition from the MarCom Awards, the County has now been honored with a total of 25 information technology awards so far this year.
